We still don’t yet have a release date for Rob Zombie‘s new movie The Munsters, a brand new movie that’s based on the classic television series. But Zombie has taken to social media to share another image from the movie today, this one revealing some fresh new casting news.
Catherine Schell (“Space: 1999,” The Return of the Pink Panther) is playing “Zoya Krupp the gypsy queen” in the movie, Zombie reveals today. Check out the first-look image below!
Zombie notes in his Instagram post today, “Catherine retired from acting in the 90’s , but now she is back and we are so happy to have her join us on The Munsters!”
Jeff Daniel Phillips is playing Herman Munster and Sheri Moon Zombie is playing Lily Munster in Zombie’s movie, with Daniel Roebuck co-starring as Grandpa Munster.
Richard Brake (31, 3 from Hell) is playing Dr. Henry Augustus Wolfgang.
Zombie is directing the film for Universal Home Entertainment, and it’s possible that The Munsters may end up being a Peacock exclusive. That last bit has not been confirmed.
If you want to revisit the original series, “The Munsters” is streaming on Peacock. That series ran for just two seasons between 1964 and 1966, spawning several feature films and a sequel television series titled “The Munsters Today” (1988 – 1991). Most recently, Bryan Fuller’s “Mockingbird Lane” reimagined the series for NBC, but never made it past a pilot episode.
